The monster realm holds many new adventures for Missy. She is able to run and laugh. She is strong…stronger than she’s ever been. To save Charlie she must complete three quests to complete the transformation. Can she do it? Is she finally strong enough?
I love how Ms. Thomas has turned the romance world on it’s head and has the Damsel rescuing her Prince. All to often the women in romance novels are unable to stand on their own, they need their strong male protectors. The author has reinforced the fact that girls can fight just as hard as to save those they love as their male counterparts.
Liss Thomas has created a world full of likeable strong well developed characters. She is very creative in her descriptions helping you envision this world with vivid clarity. This book has the reader running through the gauntlet of emotions. I felt everything from sadness, joy, anger and anticipation…I’m looking forward to reading the next book.
